If you're sick of the same-old, same-old Christmas gifts and would like to pop something different and original into your loved ones' Christmas stockings this year then BrisStyle Bazaar's Handmade Christmas Market is the place you'll want to be on Saturday 12 December.
Your wish for thoughtfully designed, beautifully handmade products from some of the best local creatives will be well and truly satisfied. The popular market's annual Christmas outing will be held in the shadow of the enormous cetaceans at Queensland Museum's Whale Mall where you can enjoy browsing the stalls of locally-produced clothing, jewellery, homewares, original art, ceramics, children's products, glassware and more.
Among the host of innovative makers and sellers who'll be appearing at this BrisStyle Bazaar you'll find the uniquely beautiful cameos and cabachon necklaces of RoryTheFoxHandmade, the pretty, whimsical tableware of Birdy and Clementine, kirraleeandco's timber hanging wall vases and shelves, and the bandana bibs, blankets, beanies and baby clothes of The Cooper Collection.
